Client of The Week: Peter!
Congratulations to our Client of the Week, Peter!
I have been a member of Jada Blitz Fitness for about six months. I had never heard of it before until a friend, who also knew Gaige, showed me the facility and introduced us. Once I stepped inside, I just knew it was the right place for me.
MY GOALS & BECOMING A PERSONAL TRAINING CLIENT
When I first started, my goals were to learn more about how to work out properly. In the beginning, I didn’t know much at all and just wanted to feel healthier. I have learned a lot since I first started, even about nutrition, and feel comfortable to workout on my own! I still think I have a long way to go but I’d say I reached my initial goals. My current goals are to get more consistent with tracking my food and to stay consistent with my workouts. The ladder is going better than the former but both are coming along.
Working one-on-one with Gaige has been a great experience. He is a really good teacher and he helps me understand everything that we’re doing and why we’re doing it. There is a lot that goes into working out so there’s a lot you need to know. I feel a lot more informed and capable than I did when I first started, and it is all thanks to Gaige. He is also super chill and makes it fun which is what I enjoy the most and why I think I’ve learned so much and actually retained the knowledge and we have nice chit chats while he makes me feel like my limbs are about to fall off, but in a good way!
A fun memory I have of us together is when I met his grandparents. They work out a Jada blitz too and we see them from time to time. They’re just so nice and like how I’m tryna be when I’ve aged, still going to the gym often and staying healthy!
ADVICE FOR ANYONE THINKING ABOUT TRYING PERSONAL TRAINING
A valuable lesson I have learned is to take things slow and appreciate the progress no matter how big or small the steps. Working on your body is a constant process that takes time and it can get discouraging, but Gaige keeps me motivated and holds me accountable to showing up and doing the damn thing! Advice I’d give, do not be intimidated. Get a personal trainer or just go to the gym. I feel like people are afraid of being judged but who is going to judge you for trying to better yourself? Everyone at the gym is trying to do that in one way or another and if it’s something you really want to do you should go for it.
THE FACILITY & STAFF
The staff is super nice and accommodating. I may, or may not have, thrown up once and got it on the floor and in the trash and no one made a fuss about it. If I ever need anything, like help with switching a payment card or when I lost my key card, it’s always taken care of fast and easily.
MEET GAIGE HOOT, CPT AT JADA BLITZ FITNESS
I was introduced to Peter through a mutual friend and we hit it off right from the start. I could tell he was ready to put in work and push the limits to achieve his goals. I’ve been more than impressed with Peter’s adherence to the process. One major reason Peter has been so successful is due to the teamwork factor that comes with personal training. It’s beyond just me giving orders and him doing what I say. It’s about constant communication, learning, and adaptation, from both perspectives. He will probably tell you the same thing, but my favorite memory came right after our first training session together, when he threw up on our way into the locker room.
What I enjoy most about working with Peter, is how far I’ve seen him progress since day one. He’s achieved so much in a short amount of time, I’m excited to see how he continues. Not to mention he’s just a cool person and we get along very naturally.
